President of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation (SVGFF)  Venold Coombs was slapped with a two year suspension by the FIFA Ethics committee over a ticket scam at the 2014 World Cup.

Coombs was found guilty of bribery and corruption and was also fined us$40,000.

FIFA said in a statement that “the investigatory chamber analysed allegations that Coombs had sold tickets purchased by the SVGFF and by him personally, in his capacity as a FIFA standing committee member, for a profiteering mark-up.”

It added Coombs is therefore banned for two years from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level.”
